Have you tried meditation and got no results? Do you have a hard time sticking with it? Or maybe you can’t focus enough to get in a meditative state? If any of that’s happened to you then it might be easy to give up trying to meditate altogether. But you can’t do that because meditation is important and if you’ve tried it then I’m sure that truth resonates with you as well.
Meditation is the key to obtaining an organized mind, inner balance, and spiritual awareness. Once you begin to meditate your dreams will intensify and you will become more aware of another level of vibration around you. Meditation is the foundation upon which you can build a strong spiritual presence. Your perceptions will get stronger and you will be able to see beyond linear time. All improvements of the self begin with meditation because it’s through meditation that you actually get to know yourself.
Not only is meditation positive for your spirituality and awareness it’s also good for your physical and mental state of health. It can lessen stress, lower blood pressure, improve heart disease, slow aging, balance emotions, intently focus the mind with increased neural response, improve mental health, and gain more interpersonal control of how one’s thought processes create their quality of life.
A guided meditation is typically considered one in which someone’s voice guides you through the process. The voice can be your own or someone else’s. Some people feel more relaxed or more clear as a result of guidance and support of another’s voice.
Another form of guided meditation is using Binaural Beats.
The human brain goes through many frequency cycles during each day. Different frequencies produce different effects to the human consciousness. Using this information, it has been discovered that the brains receiving and operating frequency can be altered by sound waves. Many of the most powerful brain frequencies are less than 20 Hz. Hertz, or Hz for short, are a unit of frequency.
The ear it self doe s not respond to frequencies below 20 Hz Binaural Beats come into play which uses the inner wiring of the brain to produce the frequency with perfect accuracy.
So what happens is that in your right ear will be a frequency of 300 Hz and in your left ear will be a frequency of 308 Hz so your brain is drawn towards the beat frequency of 8 Hz which is the difference between the two. Neat right?
An example is when you fly in a passenger plane; you may often hear a fluctuating droning sound. That is a beat frequency caused by engine vibrations at two close frequencies.
Different Hz are associated with different things. For example 4-7 Hz, which are classified as Theta waves, are associated with Dreams, Deep Meditation, and REM sleep.
When you are just falling asleep at night you are probably in the 7 – 13 Hz range, classified as Alpha waves, which are associated with Relaxation, and before and after bed drowsiness.
During the day when you are awake, you are most likely in the area of >40 Hz, classified as Gamma waves, which are associated with higher mental activity.
The precise different Hz have been studied and proven to help you in different areas of your life. For example, if you wanted to use binaural beats for meditation, there are frequencies that will take you into a deep meditative state.
For people who are scatter brained when they try to meditate this is ideal because along with the binaural beats there’s normally an accompanying sound like water or music that’s very easy to focus on. And for people who have a hard time getting into the meditative state the beats help them out with that.
No matter who you are or how you find it easiest to do it meditation will benefit you.
A practicing hypnotherapist, neuro-linguistic practitioner, music and sound therapist, and guided meditation teacher certified in the state of Arizona, USA has come up with a system to help you meditate without fail. Learn how he can help you at guided meditation.
